mean, the state of virginia, you know very well a few weeks ago in that primary vote, you were up, what, 35 percent in a republican turnout over last time? >> huge. bill: that's substantial. >> you're going to have -- there's no doubt in my mind you're going to have a very big republican turnout and much of it if not most of it will be a protest vote. protest votes are very powerful motivation, not to be underestimated and apathy in midterms with the party in power is also a very distinct problem that occurs tile and again, particularly when times are bad, and times remain bad in the eyes of most americans. americans weren't loving the way the economy was growing when it was growing in the middle years of the bush administration, they certainly aren't happy with it now and they're not going to be happy any time soon. these measures taken now by the president i don't think are going to have any noticeable effect. bill: we'll debate if this in 30 minutes with doug schoen and brad blakeman. good to see you. >> i hope so. juliet: such a cool guy. >>> tropical storm hermine barreling into th

in northern virginia which seems obvious there, speak to small business, find out what you need, find out how you can help them. what i have not seen and what i've read so far is appealing to social issues. have they been sidelined in 2010? >> they've not been sidelined. social issues are always important in the political process. i think it's safe to say when you ask voters today, top of mind response, what's the most pressing issue facing the country today, they'll say jobs and the economy, probably followed closely by debt and excessive federal spending. but i think one of the things that's been clear from this document, from what we've seen of it, and it's not all out there obviously, but from what i understand, that the focus will be on jobs, economy, national issues, and it's not a full two-year governing document, it's to say here's what we're going to do when we first get control because these are priorities, and i think you have to prioritize the most important function for the majority is scheduling on the floor of the house what bills you're going to bring and what republicans are
